About Jesse Hemson-Struthers
As an entrepreneur, co-founder and investor in industries ranging from financial services to education, I’ve found that the best way to predict the future is to create it. You have to not only embrace change but ruthlessly, fearlessly provoke it. And whatever comes of it, we can never ever be comfortable with good enough.
My first successful digital venture saw exponential returns over a 10-year period for a disruptive e-commerce offering, before being fully acquired by global media giant Naspers in 2014. Another exit in 2017 to Sportradar positioned a high-growth gaming technology startup, for continued expansion and success.
A standout focus since 2014 has been the shifting face of global financial technology, and what the future of money could become in our lifetime. We’ve invested deeply into the financial technology space since 2014, with our most substantial offering being Wiredirect. With the rapid growth of the service, I’ve led the launch phase as CEO, negotiating global partnerships, growing key services globally and building out a world class expansion team.
